David Taylor's chapbook The Log from The Sea of Cortez: A Poem Series is a poetic examination and celebration of the published log of Ed Ricketts and John Steinbeck's six-week collecting trip through the Sea of Cortez in 1940. The poetry elaborates and expands on the crew, as well as recalling the people, cities, and environments they encounter. The chapbook serves as more than a companion volume to Steinbeck's 1951 Log. Taylor's poems articulate the ways in which the trip became an exploration of themes and concerns which resonate today: a growing concern for overuse of the natural world, the legacy of colonialism, the intersection of the arts and sciences, and the uneasy place of spirituality in a modern worldview.
